You'll hear the same ol' stuff today -- "The Vols got two more Bammers, blah, blah, blah" -- but UT's new athletic director Dave Hart announced today that he has hired Jon Gilbert and Mike Ward away from UA to join his staff in Knoxville. Gilbert has been named executive senior associate athletics director. Ward has been named senior associate athletics director for administration and sports program. The name we've heard here is Ward, who Alabama fans constantly describe as an up-and-coming star in the world of compliance. These were quality hires, and Hart also insinuated in his quote that David Blackburn and Chris Fuller are staying with the department, which is also very good news.
